On July 1, 2022 we began our 3rd full year of vital safety net support services and this winter is our 8th winter running the Emergency Warming Center.
This grass roots community effort has grown each year and with COVID hitting in March 2020 we expanded to fill a void in safety net services and began year round support services for our unhoused and under-housed neighbors. In November 2020 we expanded from The Emergency Warming Center,to North Tahoe Truckee Homeless Services which is a program of AMI Housing Inc. This partnership gives us long term stability and the ability to access to federal funding to help sustain these vital supports and move towards the larger goal of preventing and ending homelessness in the North Tahoe Truckee region.
Our life giving & life saving programs this year are:
Here is a link to our 2022 Annual Report & Success Stories: Link to our Annual Report Our most impactful statistic was our team helping 40 households END their homelessness by moving into housing!
Here is the story of Sam and Mary who lived in Tahoe for 43 years. Like many locals, they lost their housing during the pandemic. Without any family support, they found themselves unhoused for the first time in their life. Thankfully, they were connected to our organization through Sierra Community House. We were able to connect them to the needed resources to qualify for one of the new, below market rate apartments in Truckee. Thanks to this type of housing, case management and funding support once they moved in they could afford their rent with their Social Security income. They continue to access their doctors and support services they built over their years here and are able to remain in their community.
We appreciate your support as we continue to provide vital safety net services and End Homelessness in the North Tahoe - Truckee region, one person at a time. Your support will help us continue these programs and take steps towards a long term or permanent location for services when our lease at Church of the Mountains expires June, 2023.
